Equitable Access to Excellent Education


Preparing, developing and supporting effective educators is one of the ways the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is working to ensure that all Missouri students are successful and become college and career ready. DESE annually compiles data on the effectiveness of efforts to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for all public schoolchildren in the state, especially in high-poverty, high-minority or rural districts.
